Zero Conditional

Zero Conditional

The zero conditional is used to talk about general truths, or things that are almost always true under certain conditions. For example, it's pretty much always true that if it rains, stuff gets wet.

Zero conditional is easy to form because all the verbs are in present tense. You just use two clauses, one with If + simple present verb and the other with another simple present verb, as in, "If students miss an exam, the professor fails them." Or you can reverse the order of the clauses. You can say, "The professor fails students if they miss an exam."

Finally, this form can also be used for giving instructions about what to do under certain conditions. For example, "If I'm late for dinner, start eating without me."

Rezky, when I had no idea that English, baby is exist I used to watch the English lessons.


So the teacher said.


Foreign language needs a regular practice and repetition. Try to pay 10 min everyday to repeat the stuff. The result will be much better than if you pay one hour or more once in several days. :)
